Torque for Teens

Customer Reviews:

Torque For Teens? I'm 33 and loved it...

By Nicolas Mcgregor - January 20, 2008

I've purchased pretty much every book on the Torque engine that I've come across, and I consider "Torque for Teens" to be a cut above the rest.

It's approachable, detailed and well-delivered, each step building on what has been previously covered. No prior knowledge except a basic understanding of computers is assumed, but I did not find myself bored by covering aspects of game design or Torque I am already familiar with, as Duggan never takes a lecturing tone, nor talks down to the reader. I suspect the author is a natural-born teacher.

I'm delighted by this book. It's an invaluable guide for anyone considering purchasing, or already developing with, the Torque engine. Five stars out of five from me.

Didn't live up to high hopes...

By Crazy Daisy's Mom - June 30, 2008

Purchased this book for my son who is interested in learning game programming. The book had a cd which was suppose to be all inclusive, but we ran into problems. Could not find examples it talked about in Chapter 4. Think there are items missing that we should have. The book does not spell out if you have to go to the website and download the development kit.

My son is not to happy with the book. I have a degree in computer science and I'm not happy with the book either. It's simple, if the book says go and get this file from this directory then it should be there.

Outstanding gift for any wannabe game maker

By GameLaw.ORG "www.GameLaw.ORG" - March 23, 2008

This is an outstanding overview of Garage Games' Torque Game Engine. Any aspiring game maker needs to have a copy of this book for reference. Torque allows rapid proto-typing of game ideas, supplying all the foundation for rendering, animation, sound, networking, scripting, all for both the PC and Macintosh. My own teenagers (pictured on the cover, CD, and page 31 :-) use a $25 copy of Milkshape 3D, and put their own models, sometimes with their own rigged, animated skeletons, right into a $100 copy of Torque, and play their own games.

After you've hooked your wannabe game makers with Torque for Teens, send them over to the perfect followup book:

3D Game Programming All in One, Second Edition

Torque has quickly become the number one game development and design harness for nearly all high school and college level game theory, development, application, and graphic design classes.
